Though we might know what we want to achieve, circumstances don’t always fall into place as we wish. Windows of opportunity sometimes seem to open according to their own schedule rather than ours.
The idea of being prepared is clearly appropriate to windows of opportunity. Taking our chances when they occur, even if we may feel a little perplexed by their sudden arrival, is made easier if we are, in any case, prepared.
Possibly Abraham Lincoln had this in mind when he offered this observation: “I will prepare and someday my chance will come.”
That each window of opportunity brings its own challenges is probably to be expected. Were all things easy maybe we are setting our goals too low. Stretching ourselves, reaching beyond the mundane to fulfill our potential habitually requires some effort on our part.
So, before this window of opportunity to connect with you closes, let me just thank you for reading this today. If you wish to share your thoughts on windows of opportunity or related issues, please leave a comment below.
Kindest regards to you.
